Aim: To study correlation between lip print pattern, finger print pattern and ABO blood group.
Materials and Methods: The study group consisted of 27 males and 27 females who were aged between 20â€“40 years. Lip prints, finger prints and ABO and Rh blood groups of each individual were recorded. Lip prints were classified, based on Suzukiâ€™s and Tsuchihashiâ€™s classification and finger prints were classified, based on Michaelâ€™s and Kuckenâ€™s classification. The results were statistically analyzed by using Chi â€“ square test.
Results: Complete vertical lip print, loop finger print pattern, O+ blood group were predominant among individual groups. O+ blood group-type I lip print combination, loop finger print pattern-type IV lip print pattern combination, O+ blood group-loop finger print pattern combination and both B+ blood group-loop finger print pattern- type IV lip print pattern combination and O+ blood group-loop finger print pattern-type I lip print pattern were predominant.
Conclusion: Though lip prints, finger prints and blood groups had their own specificities, correlation of the three parameters did not show any significance.
